I would not recommend this school. The over-emphasis on discipline, the antiquated teaching methods, and teachers who aren't really interested in developing the whole child, all left us wondering why we were paying private school prices when my child could go to public school for the same low-quality education. We switched to another private school and haven't looked back.

Fabulous from the babies on up. A perfect combination of education and discipline, The teachers do so much with them during the day that homework is just a reinforcement of what the did. it is not the parents having to teach them everything with hours of work a night. We have loved the atmosphere, teachers and campus which resembles a college since it is so spread out and pretty. I also love the swimming they have right on campus.

At Kehoe, the students are all mean to each other, and nobody ever gets along with each other. Therefore, there is a lot of drama at KF, and the teachers do a poor job at trying to end it. I can really tell that the teachers don't care about us students, and they're always mean to us. There may be one or two teachers that are nice, but the rest are just mean. There is also a poor administration. Therefore, nothing ever seems to get done. When I first came to KF I really liked it, but once the administration changed, the school started to decline, and I am now transferring schools.

Excellent academics. K-F students get accepted to whatever high school they want upon graduating. Strong discipline which has been great for our kids.

I emrolled my son here and have had a great experience. The academics are challenging. The student teacher ratio is great. They are consistent with their discipline. The campus is like a park.

Kehoe-France is a wonderful school with a dedicated faculty and great students from involved parents. Advanced academics, athletics,arts and old school values makes this school special. Graduates succeed in the high schools of their choice in all facets of school life.

Kehoe France is not just a wonderful school, it is an amazing place to grow up! You become part of a family at Kehoe France! I am a former student of Kehoe France and the education I received was excellent and the memories are forever!!! My niece and nephew now attend Kehoe France and they have also been blessed with great teachers and a loving, caring environment! I am also a teacher so I know first hand that their individual needs are being met. KF has gone above and beyond in every way! If you are looking for a school that challenges your child while allowing them to be individuals then Kehoe France is the school for you!!! I LOVE this place and all it stands for!

Kehoe-France is definitely a school in decline. They have recently let go senior teachers in favor of hiring newer, less experienced ones. As a consequence, the quality of education has declined. Growing discontent among teaching faculty toward administration is also a problem.

I was considering this school for my child until further conversations with one of the office staff. They were very unprofessional and reactive to a few simple questions. Sorry, not sending my child somewhere when that is how you treat the nice, inquisitive parent.

This school is great if your child has no issues or special needs. They have very little resources for such and do not seem to find ways to help your child if there are issues. Basically, if your child does not fit into the round peg then your child is likely to be expelled or you will need to hire a shadow at your expense. I have found the my son has developed excellent manners, but the moment he started exhibiting special needs the administration and teachers had no clue how to handle him except threaten with expulsion. Rather, an intervention and plan should have been initiated early on instead of letting it get worse and worse. We were kept in communication; however, no idea the severity until my son started having accidents at night and nightmares that prompted us to do further testing and get help. Great if your child is laid back and has no issue; however, if there are ANY issues....you are best at a school that is more equip to handle.

My son has attended Kehoe for 4 years. It's been a wonderful experience for him. It was a difficult transition at first, but he's developed excellent study habits and organizational skills. They have a great academic program, but encourage students to be well rounded and participate in sports/music/clubs. We've had good experiences with the teachers and staff. The parent support is phenomenal; it's like an extended family environment for our kids.

I am in currently in the 7th grade at Kehoe-France and I have been there since I was 2 years old. The school is very, very structured and will push you above and beyond. Not that this is a bad thing, but sometimes it can get a bit ridicoulous because of some of the expectations they have. Although, if you pay attention and take school seriously it won't be a problem. You can tell that some of the teachers don't want to be there and that some are happy to be there teaching you, which most of them are. Yes, there are teachers that most of the students dislike, as you will have in any school, and there are teachers that will leave an everlasting impression on you forever. The extracurricular activities are great and there are a ton! Some grades are harder than others. You just have to be prepared!

Excellent academic school with a caring, nurturing environment. The owner and his four sons know each of the 600 plus students by name. Family values are stressed and the academic courses for each grade level are one year accelerated. Your child will graduate with both a strong academic background and a character you can be most proud of!

Overall a nice school, but the atmosphere is strict. It is a serious school. Our experience is limited though to one teacher.

My child was at Kehoe-France for 4 years, and overall had a positive, growing experience there, and a very good education. The discipline at Kehoe is a plus for the school - They do not put up with much, and all schools should take this stance. They also teach the children good manners and respect and demand that. The downsides of the school which unfortunately overpower all the positives is that they push the children way too hard, and do not allow them to have a home life after school since they are doing homework constantly. Also, the parents' concerns are not taken into consideration, even though they are ultimately the ones who are keeping the school in operation by paying the exorbitant tuition fees.(another downside). The Kehoe staff in general has no respect and a closed ear to the parents.

My daughter just graduated from the 8th grade at Kehoe Southshore and have two boys remaining. She is going to her high school with all honor classes and the desire to do her best at whatever she does. I cannot say enough about how this school develops a well rounded child with a desire for excellence. The France family loves and cares for all of these children.

I wish that we'd had the experience of the other parents on this list. Our child's time at Kehoe-France was anything but positive and his self confidence was severely damaged before we made the decision to move him. Kehoe claims that it's curriculum is advanced and strongly encourages holding children back. I have yet to read any research which supports this. We did not do so and our child has excelled in his new school.

Great school! Great staff that loves what they do. (they know parents and kids by name!) Parent involvement is phenominal. Offers extracurricular activities such as sports, music, and several clubs. Campus looks like a summer camp. (day camp available during summer) Lifts kids' self esteems by helping them achieve greatness! I was very pleased with this school.

Excellent academics, less than friendly office staff, very good environment for a child, park like school grounds, individual attention adequate.

My son has done a complete turnaround at this school. He is ahead for his age group yet, the homework is not over done. He is enjoying learning. I find he has a higher self esteem and his attention span is getting better even though he has A.D.D. Great school!
